a woman scorned
by so much undone
a raging fire
and yet not even a whisper escapes
drowned in understanding
she could never be otherwise
oh how you deceive
the loyalties at your door
day by day
pretending to be something
and did you love her for love
or was it to own
to have
to display
once a man curious to know every detail
now a man lost
and two broken hearts
a wrong to be made right
but a union to remain broken
broken by need
dragging her down by need
when it was she who needed you
and still you clung and clung and clung
slowly sinking her
choking her
by the weight of lack
a void that could never be filled
you must lead she said
over and over
show me
take my hand
lead me into our future
show me
and my heart is yours
